Delmar Man Arrested for DUI, Drug Charges


The Maryland State Police Salisbury Barrack says it has apprehended a 30-year-old Delmar man on numerous traffic charges including driving under the influence and reckless driving.

Troopers say on Monday, May 6 shortly before 10 p.m., they responded to the area of East Line Road in the area of Northbound Route 13 for reports of an intoxicated male riding a bicycle causing a traffic hazard. Troopers arrived on scene and detected a strong odor of alcohol coming from his breath and person. They say they witnessed a glass bottle containing an alcoholic beverage tucked in his waistband. He refused to remove his hands from his pockets and later drew a semi-automatic handgun out of his pocket. This caused Troopers to hold him at gun point. He was later taken into custody.

The suspect was identified as 30-year-old Dustin Richard Smack of Delmar. A search revealed he had over 10 grams of marijuana on his person, a silver metal smoking device that contained burnt marijuana and smaller bottles of an alcoholic beverage.

Smack was charged with Driving Under the Influence, Driving While Impaired by Alcohol, Negligent Driving, Reckless Driving, Failure to Obey a Traffic Control Device, Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance and Possession of Paraphernalia.
